Brothers, As of this writing (August 2005), the Pi Zetes are looking forward to the new school year at RPI. In preparation for the new year, the actives are arriving on August 22nd, one week before classes begin, for “Work Week.” On Sunday, August 28th, we will have our annual “Rush Preview” meeting with Alumni and Actives making plans for this years rush.
The Actives are enthusiastic about getting the House in shape for the new year and the Fall rush. They recognize the financial and social advantages of increasing the size of the brotherhood and I believe they will work hard and have a successful rush.
In addition, we are sending four actives to the International Convention in Boston (August 16-20). This is a great learning experience for them, as well as a lot of fun. I fully expect that it will give them better understanding of our brotherhood and what we expect from each other.
Finally, I would like to remind everyone that Alumni Weekend is back next Spring, for the 55 anniversary of the modern founding of the Pi Chapter. We will have a special celebration at the Albany Marriott and will be reserving a block of rooms there. Remember to mark the weekend of April 21st, 2006 on your calendar. See you there!
